comment Export iOS Icon Sizes in Affinity Designer
I haven’t done any testing, but be careful this method doesn’t end up with bitmap scaled assets from the larger size. If it does, they will be worse quality than scaling as vectors/layer effects. You can’t just use slices in Affinity Designer? If I get time, I’ll set it up to test.

comment When I export an image from Illustrator, why is it a slightly different color in the exported image?
It’s also worth noting that profile conversion is a bad thing. It often leads to rounding (visible as banding) and clipping. If you can create with your display set up as sRGB with no conversion, you’ll be better off for it. Print design is not the same as UI design when it comes to colour management.

Nope. The main difference is that UI typically isn’t colour managed — if you provide a file with an ICC profile and pixel that’s #ff0000, then iOS, OS X and Android will display it as #ff0000 with no conversion. If you do the same for a JPEG photo on the web or for print, the profile will be used to convert to the display’s colour space. They are absolutely NOT the same. People who argue they are clearly have no UI design experience.

The issue with that site, is that it’s for photographers. A different approach is needed for UI and web design.

comment Photoshop Actions: Export with exact pixel size, not percentage
Can you give us a rundown of what the action is doing? There’s probably a few ways to solve it, but it’ll depend on your exact steps and desired outcome.

comment Is 32-bit color depth enough?
@joojaa Yeah, definitely. There’s other variables, too. Many displays have temporal dithering and other crazy stuff you can’t easily test for.

@WarrenYoung I’m not up to speed with recent RAW formats, so thanks for the additional info. I’ve added a bunch of info based on your comments. Also added a credit to the bottom. Thanks again.

Sketch is pretty much the exact opposite of what you’d want to build pixel art in.

@digijim Good point. I'll add in a section about CMYK (just to add more confusion).
